In other's words
I retired in 2010 as I wanted to spend more time with my family. However, I received numerous requests from former colleagues to assist in various projects, so rather than set up a new company, I contacted Parasol. Parasol has enabled me to have the best of both worlds. Much of my work I do from home, so I’m able to combine work and family successfully, with flexibility around working hours. Being able to log timesheets and expenses online makes administration work easy. When the odd problem does arise, Parasol are only an email or a phone call away and an acceptable solution has always been reached. For people like me who prefer to “wind down” on retirement rather than a sudden stop, I would certainly recommend using Parasol. It’s a great flexible way of minimising administration time and costs, so you can concentrate on the “core business” and family.
I knew about Parasol because my wife had previously worked as a contractor, so from the very beginning, I knew I was in safe hands. Parasol's helpful and knowledgeable team helped me get started and as a first time contractor, this was very important to me. The online portal is really easy to use and makes submitting timesheets and expenses a breeze. I know that if I ever have a problem, Parasol is just a phone call away - even at the weekend, so I can contact them at a time that suits me. If you’re new to contracting and want a dedicated and professional team by your side, I recommend Parasol.
Your customer service has been excellent, the speed of answering my questions amazingly quick and the whole experience of using Parasol, at a time when I was under stress due to having been unemployed for a few weeks, made the transition easy and without any complications, which I really do thank you for. If this is the standard that everyone receives, let me assure you that you are doing everything perfectly.
